'm 5ft 7 and weight 10 stone 3 roughly. when i started dieting i was 11stone 7 so have lost a bit!

not sure what weight i should be aiming for. i know there are guides to indicate what you should be for health purposes and i do fall in the healthy section. i'm more looking to see what other b2b of similar height would like to weight on their wedding day?

Hi foofan,
I'm 5"8 & weigh the same as you. I've lost about 9lbs since January thanks to Slimming World lol, I think that the weight we are is perfect & now i'm just looking to keep up with the gym etc. I have been at 9st before because I was ill & I (&h2b) will vouch for the fact that being so light doesn't look nice!! Do you have a pair of jeans that you want to fit into? Or maybe just focus on being toned, try not to worry about what the scales say & think about how you feel Well done on the nearly 2st!! xxx

thank you for your reply!! i think your right about being too light. i've started power walking to tone up my thighs as everywhere else is ok!!

i want to be slim on our wedding day but dont want to look painfully thin(although i dont think i could even lose that much!!!)

thanks again!!

I am 5ft 7 1/2 and if I were 10stone 3 I'd be delighted. Sadly, I'm hovering around 13 stone 8 no matter what I do (or don't do). At least I was sensible and bought a dress that fitted so I'm not under any pressure to lose weight, although a few pounds less would make my dress look better round the middle. When I was 10 and a half stones I looked and felt skinny. That feels like half my life ago now.

I'm off to do a body pump work out now. Wedding is 2 weeks on Tuesday so no sodding chance of losing much weight before then. Will just have to get my daughters to lace my bodice up nice & tight. :\)

I'm 5ft 8 and have just rejoined Slimming World to try and shift a few pounds. The minimum they have a healthy weight (i.e the lowest I am allowed to get to) is 9st 8lbs, but the leader has set my target as 9st 13lbs as she thinks 9 & 1/2 is too low for my frame?

I reckon you're probably good at the weight you are & be warned, I lost 8lbs in the final week before my wedding in September 2007 due to stress and worry and my dress looks a little loose in some of my pictures, so don't lose too much beforehand!!!

I'm 5 foot 6 and 9 st 6 so maybe a bit more than that? 10st would look healthy!

I'm 5 foot 8 and am 10 1/2 stone. I got down to 10 last year and really like the way I looked. My BM is the same hieght and has lost a lot of weight as she's been a bit ill and is just under 9 1/2 stone and she's looks awful. She knows she does too but can't put the weight back on (lucky bugger). I think any lighter than 9 stone 9 would look a bit oo skinny. You can see my BM bones sticky out now.

I'm 5 ft 8" and currently weigh 8 stone 11lbs. I did weigh 9 stone 5lbs at the beginning of January and have lost a bit of weight since then to fit comfortably into my dress. I still look healthy as far as I'm concerned, but I'm going to stop when I get to 8 and a half stone as I think any thinner would look unhealthy.

I'm 5ft 9 1/2 and weigh just over 10 1/2 stone (have lost 2 stone) I think I look pretty good as I am size 10/12 but aiming for 10 stone for the wedding (AI honeymoon to leave room for lol) I keep getting "if you lose anymore you'll look anorexic" comments - I have a medium frame x

Hi FooFan,

I'm 5 ft 7 and weigh 10&1/2 stone. I think the 'official' ideal weight for our height is between 9st 10lbs & 10st7lbs. I think it really depends on your build though, everyones different. I'd like to shift 1/2 stone before my wedding, but this is mainly toning up & gettin rid of belly fat!! I'm happy with my size in general (Size 12)
